News round-up: Tim Cook meets with President Trump (and more)

Since Steve and I can’t cover everything, at the end of each week day, we’ll offer this wrap-up of news items you should check out.

Apple CEO Tim Cook met with President Donald Trump on Thursday, according to Business Insider. They purportedly discussed “trade, U.S. investment, immigration and privacy.”

According to AppleInsider, O2 has become the latest carrier in the United Kingdom to offer the LTE-equipped version of the Apple Watch Series 3 and Series 4 to its customers. The news site also adds that Apple has brought the LTE-equipped Apple Watch to a new market, with A1 becoming the first carrier in the European territory to offer the Apple Watch Series 4 to its subscribers along with a data plan specific to the wearable device. 

Activbody, Inc., a health and fitness product innovator, says their flagship product, the portable smart fitness device Activ5, is now available at and in select Apple Stores. With its companion training app, users are able to access and track their activity from over a hundred personalized 5-minute strength-training workouts and exercises that can be performed anywhere.

Apple has tweaked the rules governing the use of enterprise certificates by developers, giving it the ability to review apps under the scheme at any time and without warning. The reason: to prevent abuse of the program to circumvent the App Store’s rules.
